Star Wars Director Rian Johnson Deletes 20,000 Tweets Because of Trolls

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has deleted about 20,000 tweets from his Twitter account. To be specific, everything from before January 25 of this year is gone, the A.V. Club notes.

Johnson’s move comes days after fellow Disney director James Gunn was fired from his post as director of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. Die-hard conservatives Mike Cernovich and Jack Posobiec had unearthed a series of questionable tweets of Gunn’s from years ago that included rape and pedophilia jokes. As the A.V. Club notes, conservative and alt-right personalities were “invigorated” by Disney’s response and have zeroed in on the tweets of other comedians like Michael Ian Black, Sarah Silverman, and Patton Oswalt. Rick and Morty creator Dan Harmon deleted his Twitter altogether after footage of Harmon sexually assaulting a baby doll during a skit was unearthed in this way.

  1. The funny thing is, the alt-right trolls have to go out of their way to get famous progressives to get fired. Rosanne literally did it to herself.

    More false equivalencies. Have fun losing sleep trying to ruin other people's lives. Losers.

  2. bullshit ppl didnt dislike tčj becuase it had females in it they hated it becuase the chrs (male too ) and story where terrible) . and there is no evidence for the rt stufff fuck off about it tlj is the worst sw movie out there

  3. Come on really fuck of course it everyone else faults have u even Star Wars the Star Wars universe has the most strongest woman in film industry look at Asoka The main reason fans didn’t like because Kathleen wasn’t a fan and she interjected her current politics we want to watch galaxy far far away not a collage speaker

  4. lol. riiight. Immediately after James Gunn gets canned? It's because of trolls? No, it's because he's an a**hole and doesn't want any light shed on it because he provokes the SW fanbase, constantly, because he's too much of a manchild to accept his failure and move on.
    Complex is pushing the Disney Spin Stories! XD

    I bet Kelly Marie Tran left IG because she didn't know how to block ppl. XD

    At least we know Johnson is going to be watching his mouth, like a professional, a little more often.

    Maybe it wasn't merely bad writing that had Johnson write a side story about freeing space-horsies while child-slaves are ignored.

    If anyone does any research, he (Rian Johnson) was on a "watch list" of pedos in Hollywood. That's why he deleted the tweets. He may have accidentally exposed himself like Gunn had. Being clear, I'm not saying that list was factual, in any way but, if Rian researched his name, he would have found it and new he had to watch himself. I think the list was, Rob Reiner, Ron Perlman, Patton Oswalt, Rian Johnson, Lloyd Kaufman and Bryan Singer and we know where SInger's career went.

    Of course, it's not because they're pedos. Oh no. It's a right wing conspiracy to bring down these left wing directors. Nothing to do with pedophilia, at all(rolls eyes).
